Enjoy Golf in Ixtapa

The top golf course in Ixtapa make this tropical destination a true paradise for lovers of this spot. It has 18 holes and is located at the opposite ends of the Hotel Zone, five minutes from each other by taxi. Zihuatanejo is only 10 minutes away. Both are renowned for their personalized caddy service and their expert staff. The Palma Real Golf Course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. in 1977 as a key element of the FONATUR Master Plan through which Ixtapa was conceived and developed as a modern tourist destination and this golf course was created in a palm orchard of coconut. A superb original copy of Robert Trent Jones Jr.'s designs, this 6,898-yard, par 72 course harmonizes with its surroundings, which in effect was a coconut palm orchard. The terrain maintains its natural lagoons and lush tropical vegetation to one side of the scenic Pacific coast. The Sierra Madre del Sur provides an incomparable mountain backdrop. The players not only enjoy the best of golf but also of a closeness to nature. Different types of palm trees surround the field, as well as mango, guava, lemon, orange and almond trees. Brightly colored flowers accentuate the lavish vegetation. Mexican and international ecologists have considered these lands as an ecological reserve. Golfers can see and hear a variety of exotic birds such as parrots, parrots, cardinals, and a rare and peculiar species of eagle called a fisherman because it feeds exclusively on fish from the lake.
